Doctor Vidali is the best of the best. I was concerned with my ability to conceive given I was already diagnosed and had surgery for endometriosis. Doctor Vidali listened to my concerns and although he initially thought it would be minimal invasive surgery he still made time to fit me into his schedule. Dr. Vidali shows how much he cares for his patients by listening to them. He is very busy. It is important to have your questions ready during any follow up call because after surgery and after the follow up he will not be available. Regardless of his busy schedule I highly recommend Dr. Vidali.

Despite being an ocean and two seas away over a phone line - I felt like we were in the same room. Dr. Vidali was so warm, kind, funny and he truly HEARD ME. He listened and heard me! Anyone with endo knows how rare this is. Zero gaslighting, full honesty and so so much help and guidance with my next steps through this perilous disease. All these 5* reviews are truly warranted. I wish I could give him 10*s and a hug. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Dr. V - you truly are THE BEST. xx

I traveled from Texas to NYC to see Dr. Vidali. He was the first doctor to empathize with me and validate my concerns and pain, and I trusted him immediately! Once I decided on surgery, his staff got me scheduled pretty quickly. My experience on surgery day was also super seamless - the hospital staff all love Dr. Vidali and made sure that I was always comfortable and taken care of. Even after surgery he still answers texts and emails, and you can just tell he is so passionate about what he does. I recommend him to everyone and 10000% would travel to him again for surgery!! Thank you Dr. Vidali!

I’ll sing Dr. Vidali’s praises to anyone who will listen. Traveling from Pittsburgh to see him is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and has a clear passion for endometriosis care. One appointment with Dr. V was more productive and validating than the two decades I spent prior, groveling and begging other doctors to take me seriously. I left shedding tears of relief that I’d finally found a doctor I could count on. His team in the office is just as kind and helpful. I’m recovering very well from the excision surgery he performed just a few short weeks later and am endlessly grateful for Dr. Vidali’s expertise and dedication to his patients. You won’t regret putting your faith in him.

After over a decade of going through dozens of doctors only to be left with worsening pain, no answers, and harmful treatments, I found Dr. Vidali. I do not know where I would be without him! Besides my surgery which was life changing, Dr. Vidali’s pre and post op care is incredible. Even two years after my surgery I had a question, and his office quickly scheduled a call for me. Dr. Vidali answered my question which put me at ease and even followed up asking about all aspects of my health and how I have been on my health journey. After going through tons of doctors, I can confidently say I would highly recommend him! He is clearly an expert in this field and is consistently up to date with all things endometriosis.

Like many women, I unfortunately fell through the cracks of Ontario’s crumbling healthcare system. Having my concerns brushed aside for over a decade and then, in the last two years, playing the waiting game as to when I would be treated is what ultimately led to my decision to travel a distance of approximately 1,500 km from Ontario to New Jersey for surgical treatment. From the moment I met Dr. Vidali during my pre-operative appointment, I knew that I was in good hands. His confident but down-to-earth and caring demeanour instilled my trust in him, and I knew I had made the best possible decision for myself. In addition to Dr. Vidali’s expertise, the lengths he goes to educate on and advocate for this disease is admirable. There aren't enough words to thank Dr. Vidali and his surgical team including Dr. McHale, Dr. Larish, and Dr. Raccuia for providing me with the utmost care. Although my operation was only 2.5 weeks ago, I am already feeling like a new person. The debilitating symptoms I was experiencing on a daily basis seem to have been taken from my body along with the extensive disease that was removed. Thanks to Dr. Vidali and his team of experts, I feel hopeful for the future.

I cannot recommend Dr. Vidali enough. He is a remarkable human being. From my initial phone consultation on April 5th to my surgery on May 25th, Dr. Vidali was able to do more for me in 7 weeks than the 6 doctors I had seen previously did in 5 years. Dr. Vidali definitely surrounds himself with the best so I knew that no matter what they encountered I would be in good hands. He was able to quickly get to the root cause of my pain instead of simply masking my symptoms. I also had a remarkably quick, pain free recovery which I 100% attribute to him and his amazing team. Thank you Dr. Vidali!

I contacted Dr. Vidali on Instagram to see if he would mind reviewing pictures from my recent laparoscopic surgery. He was very quick to respond and said yes! He provided the answers to my questions and reassured me that my endo was properly excised. I can’t thank him enough for doing this for me.

I saw Dr. Vidali for endometriosis treatment in 2021. He called me while on vacation (!!!) for my initial consultation, so I didn't have to wait too long. He took the time to listen to my long list of endo symptoms, from the physical to the social-emotional aspects of the disease. His team is as great as he is. I've been pain-free ever since my surgery, nearly 2 years now. I'm working, exercising, and enjoying life again after years of debilitating pain. I cannot recommend Dr. Vidali enough.

Dr. Vidali is amazing! He gave me his expert advice to help guide me during my infertility journey. He even provided his personal cell phone number and encouraged me to reach out for questions. Highly recommend!

Living with Endometriosis: Coping Strategies and Self-Care Tips

Living with endometriosis can be challenging, both physically and emotionally. This chronic condition affects millions of women worldwide, causing pelvic pain, fertility issues, and other debilitating symptoms. While there is no cure for endometriosis, there are various coping strategies and self-care tips that can help improve the quality of life for women dealing with this condition. In this blog post, we will delve into practical and evidence-based approaches to manage endometriosis symptoms and promote overall well-being. We aim to empower women with valuable information and tools to navigate life with endometriosis more confidently.

Living with Endometriosis

Understanding Endometriosis: A Brief Overview

Endometriosis is a condition in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus, called endometrium, grows outside the uterus. During the menstrual cycle, this tissue responds to hormonal changes, leading to inflammation, pain, and the formation of scar tissue (adhesions). While the exact cause of endometriosis remains unknown, several factors, including genetics and hormonal imbalances, are believed to play a role in its development.

Common Symptoms of Endometriosis

Endometriosis manifests differently in each woman, and the severity of symptoms can vary. Some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Pelvic pain or cramping, often intensifying during menstruation
  • Painful intercourse (dyspareunia)
  • Heavy or irregular menstrual periods
  • Chronic lower back or abdominal pain
  • Digestive issues, such as bloating, constipation, or diarrhea
  • Infertility or difficulty conceiving

Coping Strategies for Managing Endometriosis

While living with endometriosis can be challenging, there are various coping strategies and lifestyle changes that can help alleviate symptoms and improve daily functioning. Consider implementing the following tips to manage endometriosis more effectively:

  • Stay Informed: Educate yourself about endometriosis to better understand the condition and its impact on your body.
  • Build a Support Network: Connect with other women with endometriosis through support groups or online communities to share experiences and advice.
  • Practice Gentle Exercise: Engage in low-impact activities like yoga, swimming, or walking to manage pain and reduce stress.
  • Try Heat Therapy: Applying a heating pad or hot water bottle to the pelvic area can provide comfort and relieve pain.
  • Consider Alternative Therapies: Acupuncture, mindfulness meditation, and relaxation techniques may complement conventional treatment approaches.
  • Adopt a Balanced Diet: Focus on a nutrient-rich diet that includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins.
  • Limit Inflammatory Foods: Reduce consumption of processed foods, caffeine, and alcohol, which can trigger inflammation.
  • Manage Stress: Chronic stress can exacerbate symptoms, so practice stress-reduction techniques such as deep breathing or journaling.
  • Communicate with Your Healthcare Provider: Keep your doctor informed about your symptoms and treatment progress to ensure the most effective care.
  • Explore Pain Management Options: Discuss pain relief strategies with your healthcare provider, such as over-the-counter medications or prescription pain relievers.

Self-Care Tips for Emotional Well-Being

Living with a chronic condition like endometriosis can take an emotional toll, so nurturing your mental health is equally important. Consider incorporating these self-care tips into your routine:

  • Prioritize rest and adequate sleep.
  • Engage in activities you enjoy to boost your mood.
  • Seek professional counseling or therapy if needed.
  • Practice self-compassion and avoid self-blame.
  • Set realistic goals and avoid overextending yourself.
  • Surround yourself with supportive and understanding loved ones.

When to Seek Professional Help

If your endometriosis symptoms worsen or significantly impact your daily life, it’s essential to seek help from a healthcare provider who specializes in endometriosis management. Your healthcare team can tailor a treatment plan to address your specific needs and improve your overall well-being.
